Disconnect the cables to the subwoofer (including the power plug) and lay the unit on its back. Remove the speaker cover. Remove the screws from the rim of the speaker. Carefully lift the speaker out of the cabinet; handling it only by the rim. If you have someone to hold the speaker at this time (it is attached by wires inside), that is the best way to make sure it is not accidentally damaged. Now you can look inside and retrieve the foreign object. Caution: the electronics inside include capacitors, which can hold a charge even with the unit unplugged. Don't touch any bare leads inside if you can avoid doing so; if you must touch them to retrieve the object, use only your right hand, preferably while wearing a glove.

Depending on where the object stacked you can remove the cover of the speaker and unscrew the screws of the speaker or unscrew the perimetric screws of the amplifier section (the metal surface at the back side of the subwoofer). Afterwords you have to locate the object and remove it. Keep in mind that both the woofer and the amplifier section, have some centimeters cable free so don't force them in order not to get apart.

Turning the heat on makes lot of noise


If the blower motor is noisy, the bearing may be getting bad inside the blower. This will require replacement of the blower motor unit. In some cases, foreign objects can fall into the motor casing assembly also making a noise. The motor will need to be removed for inspection

Ac makes whining noise on a 2004 Pontiac grand prix


Is the whining noise coming from the engine compartment where the compressor is located or is the noise coming from inside the car? If the noise if coming from inside the car it could be your blower. When a blower wears down the bushing is the first thing to wear down and it begins to have play. That makes the blower/fan vibrate making a loud whining noise. Replacing the blower could solve that whining noise.
If the noise if coming from the AC compressor, it also could be a bad bearing within the compressor.

My 19 in magnavox tv dvd combo makes a rattling noise after i put a dvd in and try to play it


Sounds like you have something in it or the gear drive is bad. Open the door and look inside with a light. If you do not see any loose objects then I think you have a bad drive gear which would not be feasible to repair given the price of a new 19 in tv and dvd player...

Something is inside the cassette well. Or one of the reels is slipping. Reach in and manually rotate each reel hub to see if you can feel any reason for a click.
